DRILLS
Surface mines rely on rotary drills to
quickly drill consistent blast patterns.
They’re used in all applications — soft
and hard rock, extreme temperatures
and high altitudes. Drilling and blasting
result in broken materials that are ready
to be moved by excavators, shovels,
draglines and other loading equipment.

From removing overburden to loading haul
trucks, hydraulic shovels and excavators have
proven success across mining applications.
Multiple design upgrades result in reduced
swing times and more energy-efficient
motions, while a sturdy undercarriage
and high-level diagnostic systems reduce
downtime. Caterpillar offers the widest
payload range in the industry, including
smaller hydraulic excavators often used
in support applications.
